Mobile platforms hanging ones belong to devices covered by technical supervision. For people who want to work as an operator, this means, among other things, that they must have the appropriate UDT qualifications. Participation in our training facilitates preparation for obtaining these qualifications: during the classes the issues required for the exam are discussed, and the instructors teach students how to use the platforms from the theoretical and practical side.
What is a hanging mobile platform
According to the categorization of the Office of Technical Inspection, this type of platforms is included, together with stationary mobile platforms, in the IIP category. Famous brands / manufacturers movable platforms boiling pans are GEDA, SkyClimber, PWS, Power Climber. It is characterized by a wide platform (its lifting capacity and working width depend on the parameters of a given model), pulled with a winch on durable ropes to the appropriate height. The whole is operated by the control system, and the load-bearing and safety rope (protecting the platform and the operator with grasping devices) are suspended e.g. on girders / booms fixed on the roof of the building with an appropriate counterweight.
Mobile platforms - course
Classes preparing students to operate suspended mobile platforms are conducted by our experienced instructors. They conduct lectures, conveying theoretical knowledge in an attractive and accessible way for participants. You can also participate in theoretical classes remotely, in the form of webinars.
The issues discussed during the classes concern, among others:
- Types and applications of suspended platforms
- Construction of device components
- The operator's obligations to prepare for work, during and after work
- Safety rules related to the use of platforms
- Technical inspection regulations in force
After gaining theoretical knowledge, students have the opportunity to put it into practice and learn how to use the device.
The curriculum complies with the requirements of UDT. The trainings also include the approach to the state examination, taken before the appropriate UDT commission (in Warsaw or at a branch of the Office). A positive result in the process of checking the qualifications means granting the qualifications for mobile platforms. In our Center, you can also obtain authorizations for other types of devices: mobile access platforms, authorizations for lifting platforms or self-propelled mobile platforms.
What can you use the permissions issued by UDT?
Hanging platform is a device widely used in construction, maintenance, renovation and assembly works outside buildings. More and more often it is replacing scaffolding in places where it would be difficult to set up. Some platforms are installed permanently - as permanent access devices.
Such a wide application makes the operators of suspended platforms specialists sought after in the labor market. The operating skills acquired during the course on mobile platforms can be used, among others, in:
- Construction companies - for finishing works on building facades
- Companies dealing with assembly, maintenance, control of devices mounted outside buildings: air conditioning, ventilation and others
- Specialist companies dealing in cleaning, sandblasting facades, washing external windows
- Companies providing repair, maintenance and other services on atypical structures: bridges, viaducts, chimneys
Details on how to participate in the training
In the case of mobile platforms, the course takes place in several locations: Warsaw, Katowice, Krakow. If you are interested in organizing a closed training for your company, please contact us on the details.
The qualifications in the profession of operator may be obtained by people who are 18 years of age or older, have at least basic education and a certificate of no health contraindications from an occupational medicine doctor. We do not require education from students - we create groups that teach how to use them from scratch, as well as groups in which only knowledge is supplemented. Thanks to the interview and research of needs at registration, we can offer our clients participation in the course in the appropriate group.
